Available Dogs - Prince

Prince says hello

Golden-hearted Prince is a sweet old soul in a four-year old dog.  Prince loves being with his people. He does well with other dogs his size, but would be very happy to be your one and only.  He is crate trained, but also loves the comfort of his plush dog bed and would happily share the couch with you.  This boy is absolutely ready for his forever home.  Some of our favorite things about Prince - 

  • Fun, confident, quirky personality that makes a house feel full in a good way!
  • Loves tug-of-war and indoor fetch
  • Wakes up whenever you do!!
  • Loves car rides, even long ones
  • Very smart, loves learning new commands
  • A little shadow, always wants to hang out with you
  • Snuggly couch potato
  • Low-medium energy, always eager to go for a walk!
  • Friendly towards strangers
  • Well-behaved for grooming and vet care
  • Crate trained, house broken, overall low-maintenance
